Storyline

A woman radar-intercept officer (RIO) disappears at night from an aircraft carrier in the Adriatic Sea. Two lawyers in the JAG Corps of the US Navy, Lt. Harm Rabb and Lt. Caitlin "Kate" Pike, investigate. Two Italian fishermen discover the body of the missing person. Despite resentment and resistance from several sources, Harm and Kate sort through the evidence, and they find the answers. Harm, a former Naval aviator, gets a ride in the back seat in combat aboard an F-14 Tomcat, of the type which he previously flew; while doing so, after the bird sustains damage, and the pilot loses consciousness, Harm flies back to the carrier and makes a successful landing at night.

Goofs

In the episode's climax Lt. Rabb elects to fly in the backseat as RIO (Radio Intercept Officer) for the CAG on an important mission, however he is no longer flight certified and would be ineligible to fly. Further the CAG suffers an injury and Rabb flies the aircraft back to the ship. This is impossible as the F-14 does not have flight controls in the rear seat. See more »

Go navy!
6 July 2004 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

My wife is a real fan of this show, so I've seen quite a few episodes. Just once, I would like to see an episode where the US Navy itself was made to look less than perfect.

To judge from this program, when you get promoted in the navy, you gain wisdom with each stripe. On the other hand, if you don't think well of the navy, you are a cad and a scoundrel, acting from the basest motives.

My father was a regular navy officer and my brother put 20 years in the navy (mostly on submarines) and they had plenty of examples of institutional stupidity in the navy.
